COVID-19 Vaccine Access for those 75 and Older

If you are 75 years of age or older,  you qualify for Phase 1b, and are currently eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

Given the currently scarce supply of vaccine, it will take time for all individuals in Phase 1b to receive the vaccine. Review the information below to see your available options for receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. If you have already heard from your medical provider about receiving the vaccine, you do not need to do anything else.

Please, do not reach out to your doctor or medical provider about the vaccine if they have not contacted you.

While appointments may not be available immediately at this time, please know that the State is continuing to enroll providers and staff, and we expect that access to appointments will grow, particularly for priority populations in the coming weeks. 

The COVID 19 vaccine has been proven to be safe and effective for people 75 years and older. Want to learn more?
